MOVIE MONDAY


Mark and I went to see Brick Mansions (IMDb) the last week of April. Not a movie I would see by myself when I go to the show but if he could see The Other Woman with me I can certainly see this movie with him.

I have only seen one Fast & Furious movie but in memory of Paul Walker who tragically died in a car crash on November 30th last year I wanted to see this movie in honor of him. This movie was non stop action from beginning to end.
"An undercover Detroit cop navigates a dangerous neighborhood that's surrounded by a containment wall with the help of an ex-con in order to bring down a crime lord and his plot to devastate the entire city."


Next up was The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (IMDb) which I loved!! (There is one thing that happens that I didn't like) I have been a fan of Spider-Man ever since the Toby Mcguire stared as Peter Parker in the first one in 2002. 

I have to say that I am really liking Andrew Garfield who plays Peter Parker in these newer ones along with Emma Stone who I am a huge fan of. 

I don't own the original Spider-Man movies but I am definitely going to own The Amazing Spider Man movies. I watch the first one every time I see it on cable. 
"Peter Parker runs the gauntlet as the mysterious company Oscorp sends up a slew of supervillains against him, impacting on his life."


Then on Friday we went to see The Grand Budapest Hotel (IMDb). Mark took the day off since he was out of town on business in Brazil last weekend. We enjoyed this movie. Very quirky and different in a fun way. Wes Anderson movies are unique. His films are known for their distinctive visual and narrative style.
"The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend."

I don't get to the movies often, but my sister-in-law and I are going to try to see Divergent this week. We both loved the book!

I didn't realize the movie with Paul Walker was out; I'll have to let my son know, if he doesn't; since he was a big fan of the Fast/Furious movies.

We finally saw Catching Fire last night and enjoyed it :)

One of my twins wants to see spiderman, but it's rated PG-13. Plus, I know it'd be too scary for him.

I'm sure we'll be getting Spiderman 2 on DVD :)

I don't watch many movies either, but that last one sounds so interesting. My daughter loves history. How much of that is true and is it appropriate for a teen audience?

It sounds like you had fun and enjoyed yourself. We never go to movie theaters, but usually will buy the DVD if we want to see a movie.

I always enjoy your movie reviews! I used to be a big movie fan, too. I probably still would be, but in order to see one, I'd have to travel farther than I'm willing to go, these days.

Going to the movies is not something I have ever done. Just always let my kids go. I would like to see the one with Paul Walker. Not to late to try it is it. I did go to the drive end.

I've been wanting to see the Grand Budapest Hotel! I usually wait for the movies to come to Netflix. But I do miss the Mike & Ike with my popcorn. :-)

I enjoy your reviews...we haven't been to the movies in so long...

Hey don't forget to see Mom's Day Out! lol Those movies sound good.

Miss Debbie said...

Glad you liked them!

You are a saint! Actually I'd see what Kel wants too :)

Nut good tip on the Budapest one...I had been thinking of seeing it!

I think I'd like the Budapest movie, even though it was filmed in Germany. I dearly love Budapest. anyway, will have to wait until it comes on video or dvd or whatever it's called. did you like it a lot?

I heard of Spiderman, but the other ones I haven't heard of. I'm way behind the time.
